Hello all.

 

I've put together this video to demonstrate the Pscan diagnostic tool in use on my MPI. I'm very impressed by the tool and would recommend this over a T300 unit (which I also have):

 

 

I see lots of questions here and elsewhere about linking immobilisers to ECU's and this tool can do this as I show in the video. I also successfully programmed another immobiliser fob; I'm not sure how I manged for nearly 11 years with only one fob!

 

I've spoken to Philip at pscan and he's a really friendly and helpful guy who has immense knowledge of the MEMS systems. He has advised that if you have multiple MPI's (or Rovers) then you can also programme the one immobiliser remote to work on all of your cars.

 

The major advantage of Pscan is that this tool is constantly being developed and there is a support forum for it. This week I was contacted by a member on here who had bought a T300 unit and MEMS cable only to find that Rover wasn't listed as a manufacturer on the T300 tool. I personally have not had this problem but its always good to know that there is support there should you need it.

 

By comparison, here is my video of the T300 tool in use:

the other really good thing PScan does is log the readings.
Great for seeing the progression of readings from cold to hot .
Or if driving it will log 'on the go'.
Then over a cup of coffee / beer examine it all within excel.
Yes there are a few tweeks that would enhance the PScan system.
